Young, rising star choreographer guests Dansehallerne!

11/5/2014 - 11/6/2014

Young, rising star choreographer guests Dansehallerne! 4 x Jan Martens (BE) 5. - 6th of November 2014 / Thousand Threads 17 In the beginning of November Dansehallerne presents the young, exciting Belgian dancer and choreographer Jan Martens, who is already an international name and it is a scoop that Jan Martens now can be experienced in Copenhagen. Jan Martens is also joined by two distinctive and renowned choreographers; the 63-year-old female choreographer and dancer Truus Bronkhorst and choreographer Mark Vanrunxt who Jan Martens has a close relationship with. With 4 x Jan Martens Dansehallerne initiates the season's first Thousand Threads show. Thousand Threads is the unique concept of Dansehallerne with shows that contains experimental and innovative performances from home and abroad. 4 different works of love, creativity and expectations The first evening's performance is in company with the 63-year-old female dancer and choreographer Truus Bronkhorst who will show the solo BIS - a modest, but appalling self-portrait that is about to start again, continue to fight and not give up! It is a work with a strong, expressive, but also lonely woman. The same evening two dancers are on stage and they tell the story SWEAT BABY SWEAT which is about the all-consuming love between two people who can not - or will not - let the other go. And the audience will experience a modern mating ritual: naive, sensual, sensitive, however, and as painful and at the same time soothing and confrontational. The following night starts out with ODE TO THE ATTEMPT, a new solo that Martens created for himself. It is a feather light and humorous deconstruction of the creative process. When creating an artwork – whether it is a painting, a performance or whatever other medium – the artist goes through different stages. These stages become overwritten, because they are ‘inadequate’, it are layers that have become invisible in the final stage of the work. ODE TO THE ATTEMPT wants to give these stages that never saw daylight or would reach an audience a second life. Because maybe the imperfect has another quality, that can be as valuable as the final product. The other work that evening, SHE WAS A VISITOR is taut in form, with a changing emotional charge. Three talented and highly individual artists unite in creating a piece that aims to express the individuality and uniqueness of the three makers rather than compromising and placing elements side by side haphazardly. And because these three artists cannot (and do not want to) work in any other way than a personal one, it is their own stories of desire, expectation and disappointment that are reflected in the dance they create. ABOUT JAN MARTENS Jan Martens (Belgium °1984) studied at the Fontys dance academy in Tilburg and graduated at the Artesis Conservatory for Dance in Antwerp in 2006.All Jan’s works explore the possibility of a perfect balance and symbiosis between storytelling and conceptualism. He is not trying to create a new movement language, but instead he molds and recycles existing idioms and places them in a different setting, so a new idea emerges. In his work the beauty of the incomplete human being stands up front, rather than to excel in choreographic complexity or physical virtuosity. About Thousand Threads During the season, Bush Hartshorn, Artistic Director of Dansehallerne, selects a range of experimental, innovative works from home and abroad to be shown as part of the concept Thousand Threads. The idea of Thousand Threads is a term for particularly good quality in woven material. Threads of different, short works are woven together into one programme, while a few thick threads – voluminous works – stand alone. The programme also includes Silver Threads with artists above 50 years. The Thousand Threads concept seeks to challenge and broaden the idea of what contemporary dance and choreography are. Experience Thousand Threads. Be inspired, challenged and entertained.

Fresh and crazy montage of The Old Testament

11/12/2014 - 11/13/2014

The Old Testament according to The Loose Collective THOUSAND THREADS 18 Just in the midst of the dark time Dansehallerne will be full of good and happy energy when the Austria-based performance company The Loose Collective guests Dansehallerne with their award-winning performance The Old Testament according to The Loose Collective, which for the first time can be experienced in Denmark. In this, their third work the exciting company has taken up The Old Testament and with baroque music, beatboxing, diaspora post-punk and vocal harmonies they create their very own live musical interpretation of this huge text, which even today is an expression of creativity and utopia, and human aspirations and frustrations. The Loose Collective has recently attracted attention as a result of the unconventionality and freshness of their productions and their enthusiastic performance-style. In their third work, the Austria-based international group of dancers, choreographers and musicians dedicate themselves to the texts of the Old Testament. Using contemporary performance methods – from cut-up techniques and chorus scenes to beat-boxing and diaspora post punk – they propose a physical and musical montage of elements of this enormous body of text, which today is still an expression of creativity and utopia, of human ambition and frustration. In 2013 The Loose Collective won the prestigious award BestOFFstyria Award for this work. The Old Testament according to The Loose Collective is a part of the concept Thousand Threads.
